Question about Ariston Technologies AWD 121

1 Answer

Ariston Model details not handy - but has a manual setting dial on the right!

Problem- Acquired this washer dryer from an aquaintance ..ahh the model is a Margherita! The program dial started spinning midway through the cycle. Following this I tried to reset the machine in order to remove the clothes. But to no avail as door would not open and why would it the water was still in the drum. Just kept on flashing (about 10 flashes if it means anything). Eventually managed to get rid of the water by draining the drum manually. Got the clothes out and then kicked the machine hoping like all other electronics appliances would repair itself...well no not this one and managed to get a sore toe too! Not funny ok. Right so what can be done about this..not the toe silly the problem with the machine. Wonder if this information would be related to the problem. The machine had been in the garage for about 4 months before I used it and it was the 3rd wash when I encountered the problem. Your time and efforts on this will be highly appretiated. Many thanks in advance. Regards

Re: Ariston Model details not handy - but has a manual...

It would be nothing to do with the time in storage if that was a problem it would have shown its self on the first wash. The three most likely faults would be,no pump due to small blockage ie: button or coin, damaged pump, seized Next fault could be an open circuit heater, if you put a multi meter across the two contacts with the wires dsconnected, and if you select continuity it will beep. If you have a Ohm meter select a low range you should get around 23 omhs.Lastly the brushes in the motor could of worn, or the motor itself could be wrong do a continuity test on the contacts.If you have Insulation resistance tester make sure the machine on a whole has enough resistance ideally above 3 Megohms, prior to doing that test you must do an earth continuity test. MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT FROM THE MAINS

Check motor brushes for wear. Brush length is about 30mm new; 10mm or less is too short to do what they're meant to.

Please explain in some detail.. the wiring that was done and the power system in your house ( meaning ..what type of receptacle do you have and and what voltage is the washer set up for 220VAC etc?)
